New RoadRunner Caps

Recommended Posts

I live in San Diego and since the Adelphia takeover I was seeing

RR average: 3600/360 (capped 4000/375)

From August 1st to 4th the internet was intermittent only working 8 or so hours a day.

I just ran a test and got a download of over 6 Mbps while another computer was sharing that internet for online gaming.  Puzzled, I checked to see what my internet caps were at.  My download cap increased by 3 Mbps and upload increased by 330Kbps

Downstream Bandwidth 7168000 (bits)

Maximum Upstream Bandwidth 512000 (bits)

The first timewarner employees we talked to said just wait a few weeks for the takeover to complete.  I'm not sure, but I feal like it took a year.  :haha:

I ask when you got the modem, because that has to be one of the oldest one's out there still functioning, it was released in 02' , and only handles docsis 1.0 , who is your ISP? I wasn't aware that they were still viable in todays networks,  I'm very curious, please fill me in?

Well on the timewarner site i see 7 Mbps/512 Kpbs = $30 for the first 6 months.

But porsche your speeds match very closely to what I had for the past year under Adelphia's 4Mbps cap, about 3.2-3.8 Mbps average.

Porsche's modem could be still be running on adelphia's cap of 4Mbps even if RR is faster.  Thats what happened to me.

Christ, I've had that modem since the beginning of my high speed internet days.  Actually I have the SB4100 modem.  Even worse than the 4300 I would guess.  I'm not sure when it was released but I've been using it for closer to 10 years.  My area only supports docsis 1.0 so I suppose that dosent make an impact on my speeds.  Tech support tells me that I am still on the old 4Mbps/384Kbps plan and the only way I can increase that is pay more than the $70 a month i already pay.
